tom10101 (2644) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 23-04-2014. Hazy/murky golden/orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is herbal/floral with grapefruits and biscuity malt. Taste is herbal/floral with biscuity malt, grapefruits and moderate sticky bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry and sticky finish. Very good IPA, but a tad less tasty than most The Kernel beers I had so far. Good drinkability despite the sticky bitterness.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
What a treat this brewery is. And what a pain in the ass they are for making such amazing beers, and Norway being outside their meager distribution. A really well crafted, hoppy beer with a drinking ease, covering up the quite hefty 7.1 ABV (steady now!). I love the Kernel.

campbega (68) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
330ml bottle from Nelson Wines, Merton. Another great IPA from Kernel. Hazy amber pour, light-bodied with a bitter piney hops finish.Not quite as good as the Simcoe Summit version in my opinion, but up there.
